""A fall '94 release is very unlikely, as he feels that era is not worthy of whole-show release. (Spring '93 is the last tour he really likes.) ""

""He mentioned that, for instance, 1983-84 are not years he likes for personal listening (which explains to me why '83 is such a rare year in his Taper's Section!) - but if they were considered for official release, shows like 10-21-83 or 10-12-84 might get picked.""

This is the problem with the whole system. I would spend a lot more cash on these releases if I got to pick which shows I buy. Not chosen by someone with an attitude of era superiority. I do not want the sour pusses of the world deciding which Dead shows are worthy of my purchasing and listening and which are not. That determination needs to be up to the end listener. Make all the top quality recordings available for pay download and let the customers decide which are worthy of their music $$$.

I don't care a spit if someone else doesn't listen to a certain era for personal pleasure - I feel sorry for them for missing a lot of great music due to a closed mind. No one knows more than I do what GD music I want to hear. My money gets spent on things I want, not things that others determine are "good enough".

When I listen here it is 90% to shows I was at (200+ from 1980-1995). I enjoy the other stuff immensely, but the ones I attended are the ones that really get me going and willing to spend my hard earned $$$. and I don't think I am alone in this.

You can have the series things available as a pointer towards the music that is considered "of high enough musical quality". Sell the fancy packaging etc. For me its all about my listening pleasure and that means the shows I want to hear...likely the ones I attended whether or not someone who didn't get to experience it likes it or not.

Sell what the people want.

Point well taken as vast majority of heads want a connection to shows that attended
